It is appropriate that my favorite screen actor, Gregory Peck, is immortalized as Atticus Finch in the 1962 film “To Kill a Mockingbird.” as a “Forever” postage stamp.
On Thursday, April 28, 2011 the U.S. Postal Service first-day-of-issue Gregory Peck Forever stamp is displayed at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Beverly Hills, Calif. The Gregory Peck stamp is the 17th in the USPS’s “Legends of Hollywood” series.
I just bought four sheets, which should last me forever.
